Community Supported Agriculture
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial relationship between the farmer and the community of people who receive the produce. Members purchase a share (usually before the growing season begins) and in return receive a weekly supply of fresh seasonal produce.
The best and only (at this time) way to purchase our plants and produce is to sign up for our CSA. We are working on creating drop locations around the area throughout the week. We anticipate starting deliveries the week of April 13th. We are offering two payment options:
$225 with a $240 credit
$450 with a $520 credit
We will be packing $20/value bags for every shareholder. If you paid $225 you will receive 12 weeks of produce, and if you paid $450 you will receive 26 weeks of produce.
We will have some add-on items that will be available each week for ordering:
Plants-Plants will be available for pick up on farm starting April 1st. Please check out our 2020 plant list and order sheet. Email orders to firstname.lastname@example.org with desired pick-up date. Plants will also be available with CSA share deliveries (week of April 13th through the end of May). In an effort to reduce money handling, the amount of plants you pre-order will be deducted from your credit, thus reducing your balance and amount of weeks you would be receiving your CSA shares.
As of 3/21, we will definitely be delivering shares to :
Charlottesville-2 locations (northside near Whole Foods & Belmont area)
If we get at least 20 members signed up from surrounding areas or neighborhoods (Crozet, Culpeper/Orange, Richmond), we will add that location to the delivery schedule. Please share with your friends and neighbors to get Whisper Hill Farm CSA shares delivered to your neighborhood!
**If or when, our four farmers markets resume normal operations in 2020, we will honor shareholders remaining credit at any of the markets we attend.
